A distributional MOdel of Reference to Entities (AMORE)

Start date: Feb 1, 2017, End date: Jan 31, 2022,

"When I asked my seven-year-old daughter "Who is the boy in your class who was also new in school last year, like you?", she instantly replied "Daniel", using the descriptive content in my utterance to identify an entity in the real world and refer to it. The ability to use language to refer to reality is crucial for humans, and yet it is very difficult to model. AMORE breaks new ground in Computa ...

Debt and Persistence of Financial Shocks (PERSISTDEBT)

Start date: Jul 1, 2015, End date: Jun 30, 2020,

In 2007 the US and Europe were overwhelmed by a banking crisis, which was followed by a severe economic recession. Historical studies show that financial crises are followed by periods of substantially stronger contraction of aggregate output and employment than non-financial recessions. Those studies also point out that the best predictor of financial crises is an ex-ante strong credit boom which ...

Technology Enhanced Learning of Musical Instrument Performance (TELMI)

Start date: Feb 1, 2016, End date: Jan 31, 2019,

Learning to play a musical instrument is mostly based on the master-apprentice model in which the student’s interaction and socialization is often restricted to short and punctual contact with the teacher followed by long periods of self-study resulting in high abandonment rates. In such a learning model, modern technologies are rarely employed and almost never go beyond audio and video recording. ...

Many natural and artificial systems are often composed of oscillatory elements which, besides evolving according to their own non-trivial internal dynamics, mutually interact. As a result, many temporal and spatial scales are typically present, often accompanied by the spontaneous emergence of collective properties. Altogether, such features make the task of understanding the resulting evolution a ...
